Product Reviews
Epson WorkForce Pro WF-5690 MFP ($299.99-$75 savings=$224.99, Ends 3/31) is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 23.
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Ink is very water resistant, but printer needs more features I would be sending this printer back if it wasn't for the fact that the ink is very water resistant (I have tested this), and that the ink economy is comparable to color laser. My color laser printer needed new drums which would cost almost as much as this printer.The PROS:The ink is very water resistant, so it doesn't bleed when it gets wet.This machine's interface is much nicer than my previous system that had a text only display that wasn't back-lit, but the scrolling could use bigger buttons or have physical UP and DOWN buttons for scrolling.Epson's software for Windows software works well in Windows XP, which is good, because I need to run it in a virtual machine for use with Macintosh and Linux.The scanner feeder doesn't get jammed easily.There is quite mode available in the scanner software which does make scans quieter; very helpful when someone is trying to sleep nearby.Somewhat good is that the Epson software for Windows has PDF/OCR capabilities that rivals a PDF program that I bought over $100 for use with my previous multi-function printer (both don't let you fine tone or edit the OCR results).The CONS:Epson's software for Macintosh lacks OCR.Scanning to USB drive does not allow for color multi-page TIFFs; you have to use Epson's Macintosh or Windows software for that and save via a computer.You cannot duplex scan legal size documents, you have to manually scan each side one at a time. Epson's software allows you to add pages after each scan, but does not help collate scanned pages over than manually dragging pages around in the software's layout view. The software has a decent graphical interface, but not enough to help you when you have dozens of pages to collate for double-sided and you desperately need to shuffle sides A with sides B in reverse order. I know of a program for PDF to handle this, but Epson's Document Capture Pro will not accept those PDF's once they are modified by a non-Epson program. I will have to write code for collate a multi-page TIFF.Epson's Document Capture Pro will let you arrange pages and fix skews, but does not offer cropping, so you need to perform cropping in scan preview and then scan if you need cropping.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Nice hardware, but the software needs more features. I choose this printer for its reasonably priced ink that is durable similar to laser and 3 year manufacture warranty.I did get paper soaking wet to see that there is no significant ink running.At least the software for Windows lets me scan packages of my favorite foods. I can preview scan, set crop / custom page size, add additional pages, then save into a PDF/A (PDF set for archival compatibility) with OCR that rivals the capabilities of a dedicated PDF program that cost me over $100.Paper feeder for the scanner can handle a modest variety of page sizes, but not very narrow (checks placed sideways), since roller is in the middle, but edge guide to adjust page width is only on one side. This configuration might be better, since it doesn't tend to skew pages nearly as much as my last system. Page jamming occurs infrequently.You can use a USB flash drive to save scans, but it will not save color multi-page TIFFs to USB drive; you need to use the software available on Epson's website to save on a PC or Mac OS system.The Epson software for Mac does not have OCR capabilities ike it does for Windows.You cannot duplex scan legal size pages; this is further aggravated by the Epson software for Windows having many features, but none for automating duplex shorting (shuffle sides A with reverse sides B); you have to manually move pages around in the software.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Solid, reliable good capacity I've had the unit for a month. The 5690 meets all expectations and conforms to specifications. Still learning features. Online manual is helpful, perhaps a bit too lengthy. Could be designed to more easily to ID specific "how to" unit feature I need to complete a specific task.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The ultimate in printing plus. My old standby photosmart printer was not able to speak with my new printer, and I went looking. Fortunately fate was with me, and I discovered the WorkForce 5690. I was a little skeptical about all the "good things" I read about the Epson; however, my apprehensions were quickly put to rest when I started using my new wireless. The printing speed and the quality of the print is worth the price alone. It is equally great for scanning, faxing, and copying as I was able to use those features with ease and satisfaction.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Super Quiet -- Low Maintnenace I have had this printer for a few years now. I like how quiet it is when operating. The printer when doing it's routine maintenance is almost non-existent. The software is incredible. Print wirelessly from anywhere in the world on any of your devices!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I really like this printer! I like the printing speed and print quality. Also I I like ability to duplex print. I have owned other Epson printers and they make a very good product.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Printer I've only just set this printer up, but previously had a near identical model, the WF-4630. Both printers get good reviews, and that's why I just got the WF-5690. My only issue I have with this new printer is that my old one used the same ink (786) and I had just purchased it when the motherboard on 4630 failed. So when I was setting the new printer, it wouldn't allow me to put the XL786 into it during configuration saying the ink was low, when in fact it was never used, just package opened and installed into the 4630. I had to use starter ink that came with this printer. I am returning the XL786 inks for a full refund. Seems ink over designed that create false failure.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wonderful! I've had my WF-5690 for a month and it operates flawlessly. I purchased it from Epson directly, it arrived in three days, sturdily-boxed, and the setup was simple and straightforward. It operates swiftly and quietly, and has excellent build quality. Ink is smudge-proof and the starter cartridges, which came with the unit, are only one-eighth empty after a month's-worth of aggressive printing. (I expected them to be empty in a week.) Print clarity is excellent; daily I print documents, spreadsheets, paychecks and financial statements, all having some small-typeface entries down to 8- or 6-point, and not one streak, blotch or mis-formed character anywhere. None! And, no mis-feeds or other nonsense. Paper-handling has been without incident.I cannot convey here how much I agonized pre-purchase about whether to go laser or ink jet, and I made myself sick with laying out all the choices on a schedule. This went on for two months. Epson, hands-down, has the best online site for printers, with everything together on one screen (the printers, the ink, the accessories) so this makes it a no-brainer to go with a WorkForce Pro. I'm thrilled, and I heartily recommend this product to anyone needing a new office printer. (No, I am not an Epson employee and they have not asked me to review this purchase.)Just thoroughly satisfied.
